Description:

MILTON, John: Paradise Lost. A Poem in Twelve Books. [Together with] Paradise Regain'd. A Poem in Four Books.

London, Cresset Press, 1931 (and printed by Bernard Newdigate at the Shakespeare Head Press, Oxford). Folio (375 x 270 mm), two volumes, xii, 442, [1] (colophon) and [vi], 88, [1] (colophon) pages with a headpiece and tailpiece in each volume plus (respectively) 12 and 4 full-page plates (all 'designed and engraved on wood by D[emetrios] Galanis'; the title page and initial letters were designed by Anna Simons). Cream buckram lettered in gilt on the spines; all edges uncut; covers solidly bumped at the extremities; cloth a little dusty, marked, and unevenly sunned; endpapers offset and a little foxed, with a small light stain to the bottom corner of the front pastedown of the first volume; a few leaves of the second volume have small blue stains to the top edge and blank upper margin where dye from a piece of thin blue ribbon (used as a book mark) has run; a decent set (internally generally in excellent condition) offered here without the original slipcase.

Notes:

Number 145 of only 195 sets on Batchelor's hand-made paper (there were also ten copies on Roman Vellum, numbered I-X). The text of 'Paradise Lost' is from the second edition of 1674; 'Paradise Regain'd' is from the first edition of 1674.
